By R. Zwilling (auth.), Professor Dr. Robert Zwilling, Professor Dr. Cesare Balduini (eds.)

bhe target of the booklet was once to not concentration the age-dependent changes of 1 particular organic structures or phenomena, however the try out used to be pursued to hide a number of fields during which the organic study on getting older is happening. the basic objective of this making plans was once to supply the PhD scholars a sophisticated textual content that may bring up the potential for an interdisciplinary dialogue on a large and complicated box that's very compatible to be applied as an instance of the relationship latest among complicated educating and experimental research.

However, available data on muscarinic cholinergic receptor function in the aging brain are very conflicting, and our initial findings concerning a reduced response of phospholipase C to cholinergic stimulation in the aged mouse brain [21] have been supported by findings in aged Wistar rats but not in aged Fischer 344 rats (for review, see [16]. Because of these discrepancies we have recently started to evaluate the effect of aging on muscarinic cholinergic receptor function very carefully, using mechanically dissociated neurons of young (3 months) and aged (18 months) female NMRI mice.
